Roman art, architecture, and culture are still alive and well in modern society. Their architectural style can be seen in many of today’s government buildings. The network of roads built to transport troops and supplies across Europe are now used as the basis for many of the European highways. Since Roman culture was such a melting pot, using art and traditions from a variety of former and surrounding civilizations, it is not a surprise that their influence is so strong in modern society. Their ways encompassed more than just the duration of the rule, but rather adopted a long stretch of history (and physical land), propelling their customs and their art into modern culture. Many of their structures and art still exist today, such as the roaring Pantheon and various statues of Roman emperors. This speaks to the ability and talent of the civilization.
